Congress approves $500 million for defense projects with Israel
Advertisements [?]

"The United States Congress Friday approved an additional $500 million for developing joint defense projects with Israel.

The funds will be allocated between many different projects, including the development of a short-range missile interception system, navigation systems for missiles and combat aircraft, and aerial drones.

The money is not part of the regular military aid to Israel, which currently stands at over $2 billion.

The Senate authorized the funding after it was approved by the House of Representatives on Thursday."
